I find it a bit more difficult to get into an older anime, aesthetic is part of the reason why I like anime so much and some older anime isn't that aesthetically pleasing. I know there are really good older anime but I just can't get into them if they look like crap.


Aesthetics in anime shouldn't be about the looks, it should be about the message. Which older anime are better with!

I always see people arguing about this. But the fact is it's all a bunch of cherry picking. The fact is it's anime is the same as it was. Some stuff is good. Some is bad.



From what I've seen then there's a bunch of old time anime fans that argue about anime story-telling becoming less intelligent while pointing at things like fanservice. And on the other hand they're also claiming that anime as a whole has gotten bigger and bigger budgets witch have led to anime studios into not spending as much money on neach ideas that may not succeed financially.

Simple fact for me, most popular old anime shows were NOT set in highschools, or revolved around highschool kids.

It's not so much that old anime was better, so much as it's the huge amount of fanservice shows that keep getting produced. I keep hoping sunrise will do a reboot of the original gundam, since I've never seen it, and I'm not sure I would even be able to watch it with the huge difference in TV resolutions from then and now.

There are a lot of crappy old anime, but you'll never find them now, at the same time it's hard going back to old shows without a really old tv to watch them on, they all need remastering for newer, larger resolutions, to be viewable.

The only problems with anime today are the shows that are made JUST for fanservice, and the stupid fads/sub-genres like Idol shows.

We also need to remember the CG vs Hand-drawn frames arguement, which is a part of this. now I hold that shows that use both in the proper way (Gurren lagann, FMA:Brotherhood, etc...) are superior to those that only use one or the other.

I like the new stuff, I keep current. I have a tendency to avoid old anime because I like to always stay up to date.

However like parasyte, if they make an old manga into a new anime I like it.

In a sense sci-fi is the only genre that I don't care the age of.



Also don't get what the big deal about fan-service is, I'm not one percent bothered by it and sometimes I enjoy it.

Well first off, I don't think it's right to just lump all anime together. An anime season could have, like, 15 new animes in it and only 2 are actually worth watching and all the hype. But if we're just going with the majority, then I think old school might be the best way to go. I mean, I've only watched a handful of old anime and it's mostly better than what I've seen now. All the mainstream anime just seems to be a bunch of cute and/or hot girls doing cute and/or dirty things.

The age of the anime is irrelevant to me. As long as the anime is good, I will watch it no matter when it was made.


I agree with that. It's like telling people that don't know anime you watch it, they often say things like "ain't that cartoons and for kids?".

If its something you like then you like it. Each to their own I always say.

I wouldn't say one is better then the other due to the fact that people will forget about the bad stuff and only focus on the good stuff. I swear to you, I could find some horrible anime's from the 70's and some amazing stuff.

Anime today is more refined than it has ever been. But I miss the old days when things were really uncensored. So my vote goes to Late 90's/ Early 00's when they had it both ways.

Touch is one of the best slice of life anime I know with a deep story, that throw your emotions all over the place.. And It was about 3 high school kids. Well and their friends, and families. + BASEBALL!

Yes on terms of better stories, plots and all around good.. I put touch over any modern slice of life.

I grew up watching anime I luv the classics and I enjoy new anime as well a good anime is a good anime regardless of "new" or "old" imo


People tend to favor old stuff of everything due to the fact that you'll most likely forget something bad. It doesn't matter if it's a movie, game, book or whatever... If you don't like something then you'll forget about it, but if you like something then you'll remember it until you hit the bucket, and I think this is what old time anime fans have a problem with due to the fact that more anime is released today then it's ever been... Witch it turn leads to more bad anime and less good anime, but the good anime will still be out there and that's the sort of anime people will remember.

If you ask someone what anime you remember from 2015 in 10 years, then you won't tell them something you didn't like... Since you'll have forgotten about that, but you will remember the stuff you did like
